This week’s biggest launch was the one of the N1 tablet from Nokia. We’re talking about the Finnish Nokia, not the one sold to Microsoft. The keynote that introduced the slate was rather short and it’s now posted online for everyone to see. You can check it out below.
It took place during the Slush technology conference in Helsinki, on November 18th 2014. Sebastian Nystrom, head of products at Nokia Technologies took the stage to discuss the future of Nokia. He didn’t stray away from what the press was saying at the time, including “RIP Nokia” and “Nokia is dead”. The keynote was delivered in an excellent way, to an ecstatic audience, that applauded the highlights of the speech.
The Z Launcher had a special place during the keynote, with the Scribble feature detailed, allowing you to draw a symbol on the screen to trigger an app. At around the 7:50 mark in the launch clip you’ll find the official video of the Nokia N1, showing us the tablet from all the possible angles. This one is a 7.9 inch table with a $249 price tag and it will initially go on sale in China, around February 19th.
This model has a 64 bit Intel Atom quad core CPU, 2 GB of RAM and a Type C reversible USB connector. Check out the full event below:
